Yield: 1 loaf

Measure Ingredient

2 cups Sugar
2 tablespoons Crisco
2 \N Eggs; well beaten
½ teaspoon Salt
4 cups Flour
1 cup Chopped nuts
1 teaspoon Vanilla


Pour boiling water over dates and soda and let cool.

(although she didn't say, I assume you add the rest of the ingredients after the above cools)

Bake slowly for 1 hour until brown all over. Grease and flour pans well and fill only one half full.
